Why You Must Move from a Network Firewall Device to Firewall as a Service
On-Demand Webinar (60 min)
With Dogu Narin, Head of Products
Network firewalls have always been a staple in an organization’s security strategy but with the changes in how people work, perimeter security has expanded to meet new use cases. The change in how organizations implement their perimeter security is exacerbated by the move to work-from-anywhere model that employees have grown accustomed to since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Gartner, “by 2025, 30% of new deployments of distributed branch-office firewalls will switch to firewall as a service, up from less than 10% in 2021.”
Firewall as a Service, or FWaaS, helps bring traditional network firewall capabilities into the cloud which allows organizations to extend their corporate security policies to users and devices anywhere. Transition to the cloud comes with the advantages of the as-a-service model.
Join Dogu Narin, Head of Products at Versa Networks, as he explains the differences between FWaaS and traditional network firewall devices along with the market forces driving new deployments toward FWaaS.
